This year we will be following the travels and experiences of the Amazing Race Season 21 using the Travel Goal Getter iPad App which allows you to mark your own map of the world and keep track of bucket-list travel experiences. One of our favorite travel related shows on television, Amazing Race Season 21, Episode 4 left us thankful we don't have a rodent problem! Read on for the full story!
► The teams first had repair one of the 15,000 buses that transport people throughout the country each day. They filled gaps with putty, smoothed and sanded their patchwork. Most teams did not have a difficult time with this and it was fitting that the monster truck racing team (handy with vehicle body work) breezed through this task. After the teams finished the repair, they had to remove three sets of seats from a bus.
► The long haired rocker and lawyer brother team decided to go for the fast forward which allowed them to skip the bus task and complete a different task to go directly to the pit stop. Based on the episode preview, I was under the impression that the team would have to catch live rats. Instead, they had to collect dead rats which oddly enough seemed "better". This is when I thought to myself, "I sure am glad I do not have a rodent problem!". The team collected the rats, a following of onlookers, and went directly to the pit stop as the first team to check-in.
► While the fast forward was being completed, the other teams had to choose between their second task of pounding metal or pounding cotton. In pounding metal, the teams heated a metal rod and pounded it into a stake. Not a brain tasker but definitely a muscle builder. The other task, pound cotton, involved a bit more thinking. The teams hit the cotton to separate it more and then stuffed the cotton into fabric, creating a mattress. They sewed up the open end of the mattress and the task was completed. I really thought the teams would struggle with this task more but apparently they paid more attention in home economics than I!
